A couple notes, from someone who ran it extensively a while back.Take care with the adds. Seriously- many of them have a powerful knock-up, which, when you land will hit you for 30-40k. And they can chain it together- so you need to take care.The adds leading up to Fankriss will also kill you if you try to solo them. I've tried to as a Fland's geared prot paladin.Just avoid Viscidus. Seriously. We had an enh shaman, frost DK and ret pally on him. The shaman put the frost enchant on both his weapons. When he froze, we blew hero and Army of the Dead. The thing about the 'shatter' stage is about getting as many hits in as possible. Just no.For twin Emps, having Hybrids are a godsend. They don't have to have a taunt or anything, but having both means that they don't cross the room and so there is less time for them to heal each other.Kill all of the trash between the Twin Emps and and C'thun. These guys have the best chance to drops the mounts, particularly the red.On C'thun, there are TWO attacks to worry about. First is the red beam of death- as mentioned. The other is a green beam. Its a chain lightning. And rather than decreasing damage each jump, it increases. And it doesn't have a cap of targets, so you don't want to run in in a clump, or stay in a clump. It WILL KILL YOU. Seriously- it starts at about 2k for the first hit- and then doubles. So with 10 players- 4k, 8k, 16k, 32k, 64k, 128k, 256k, 512k and ending with 1024k. And since the first 6-7 bounces didn't kill people, it'll go back to them, and continue increasing- 2048k, 4096k, 8m, 16m, 32m, 64m. Hint- 64 million damage is lethal. To Firelands bosses.So yeah- care the beam.

As a level 85 BM hunter, I've soloed the gauntlet before Fankriss... two or three times now. Get on a mount, ride down the tunnel, stop at the end, explode. Entertaining!

So all we have to do is figure out a way to chain this to Staghelm and we're set!Serious note: I got 1-shot by that lightning thanks to people in a pug not listening. Spread out!
